Whew, lawd! It’s about time Justin Timberlake remembered he’s a recording artist! After 7 years, the pop/R&B heartthrob resurfaces with Jay-Z donning a “Suite & Tie.” Holding on to his production magic with Timbaland, the track surprises with swift changes, from dark and winding to bouncy and fun. The concept is adorable as JT promises to show you how wonderful love can be, but the written execution is unimpressive. “Suite & Tie” is the first cut from the pending effort reportedly titled “The 20/20 Experience” and is available now on Itunes. Take a listen here.
Fantasia is gearing up for her 4th album release in March with the new single, “Lose to Win.” Soulfully crooning over a nice, soothing sample of “Nightshift” by The Commodores, the “American Idol” winner discusses dropping the habit of dating no-good guys to get to the good stuff. If it’s any indicator of what the upcoming record will sound like, it will be a winner. You can purchase the single on Itunes and listen to it in full below.
